Rajasthan Royals leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal created history as he dismissed Kolkata Knight Riders captain Nitish Rana to become the highest wicket-taker in IPL history. Chahal came into the attack in the 10th over. The first ball of the over saw Venkatesh Iyer take a single.
Then on the next delivery, Chahal tossed up the ball around off at Nitish Rana, who went low as he attempted a slog-sweep. Rana managed to hit it well but couldn't keep the ball down. Once again it was Hetmyer, who ran in from a deep backward square and completed another great two-handed diving catch to create history.

After this wicket, Chahal then went on to pick up three more wickets and finished with figures of 4-25 in his four overs. On the back of this spell, Rajasthan then put forth a magical batting effort where they chased the 150-run total in just 13.1 overs.
The star of this chase was Yashasvi Jaiswal, who scored the fasted half-century in the history of the IPL and finished off the game at the score of 98 in 47 balls. This stellar knock included 13 fours and five sixes. Supporting Jaiswal, Sanju Samson also played a great hand and scored 48 in 29 balls.
Talking about Chahal's performance and historic record, Samson, in the post-match presentation, said, "I think it is time to give him the tag of legend. We are grateful to have him in the franchise. Never have to speak to him, give him the ball and he knows what to do. He bowls at the death as well, very pleasing for me as a captain."
